Hi Julie,

This is a very common bird of the Indian subcontinent. It is seen abundantly closelyassociated with men. It is highly adaptable and forages for food among garbage, and near houses. It builds nest in any corner or crevice of the house or in a tree. I don't know what you exactly mean by "collect things" but theey do collect twigs,papers, and other odd things to build up their nests.

Yip, introduced from India round the 1900s here in South Africa and are currently so common that they have become a pest and have been declared an invading alien species.
